Jack nodded. “It’s our first race, though, so I am a little anxious,” he said. “I’m not quite sure I’m training her right for racing. I have been mostly taking her out and riding her around the Valley and the road to Mineral Town, but I cannot help feeling like I am missing something.” He laughed a little. “I don’t know if my sister is entering too; I need a little bit of an edge against her, if she does. She’s the one who is better with animals.”
Gwen stared at Jack and turned her attention back to Mega. She walked around the horse, running a hand down each of the horses legs, her back and her neck. “She’s strong…. but I don’t know if she’ll be strong enough for racing.” Biting her lip, she kneel at the horses hooves. “You have time so you can keep practicing. Just don’t push her too hard or her heart may burst.”
bowtiedbusinessman said: Hmhm, wonderful— that’d be a great help! Thank you so much, Miss Gwen! Ah— I’ll be speaking with you very soon, then—♪ [Beams proudly as he passes off the check to her.] I must go to work now, but I hope you have a very good night!♪
No, no, Carl. Thank you~. We appreciate your business. Truly we do. *Grinning, she patted his back* Alright.. Head on to work. Have a good night as well and hopefully no girls will flirt too much with ya~.
Guys, I desperately need your help. I need to stay awake. I need you all to keep roleplaying with me. I will do my best and if I don’t respond, I probably passed out. I’ll try not to but please help me.
Anyone want Gwen, Iris or Life? I will get to replies soon.
"Are the Triples Crowns the hardest to obtain?" he asked, turning back at her as he walked. He waited for her to catch up before asking, "Have you ever travelled out of this town?"
"They are… Breeders and racers around the world try their best for it. The first two aren’t that hard if you have a good horse. The third one is the hardest. It’s so much longer than the other two races," Gwen mumbled. "Traveled outside? Of course I have. I don’t hole myself here. Why do you ask?"
Jack hopped off Mega and brought her over to Gwen. “Getting ready for the horse race this month?” he asked her.Hopping off Napoleon, she removed his bridle, bit and reins. “Are you surprised? Every time a race comes, I practice. I practice until I’m ready to drop. Not Napoleon, though. He’ll rest tomorrow and I’ll work on Bullseye tomorrow.” Flipping her hair over her shoulder, Gwen looked Mega up and down. “Are you entering Mega?”
I’m glad you do. Maybe I’ll donate some milk and eggs to get you started even more! *She leaned against the counter* I’m sure it will. Spring is already here so the snow should melt away in a couple of days. Hopefully. *Whistles as he writes, tapping her fingers against herself. Standing up, she took the check and held it close* It’s a pleasure doing business with you, Carl~. I’m sure it’ll look wonderful~.
With every beat of her heart, she knew that Napoleon’s was beating even faster. They circled the small pasture, hearing neighing cheers from the other horses. Although she knew that she should be training Bullseye, this would be Napoleon’s last race. He needed all the practice he could get. Jack’s words fell on deaf ears and she continued to ride with her horse. After the sixth turn, the slowed the a stop. Napoleon breathed heavily and moved over to the water trough, guzzling what he could.
Gwen looked up and spotted Jack then waved at him. “Come on over!”
Oh he’s your brother? [Pauses for a moment] I… don’t really see the family resemblance. But I’m a carpenter too, and I just thought I’d say hello and get to know some of you guys! [She comes over and leans on the nearest counter top] So tell me about yourself~ It’s not often you see gorgeous women in carpentry.
*Shrugs* We’re not related by blood. That doesn’t mean I don’t see him as such. *Stands up, stretching her arms above her head* A carpenter, huh? From where? *Stalls in walking over to her before slowly walking to the counter* Uh, there’s not much to tell really. I take care of the shop, the orders, and lend a hand when the boys need it. That’s all. Um… Thanks for the compliment, though.
"Prodigy? You should join the national competitions then! I bet farm bred horses are much better than the ones they train in the city," he said, carrying his things out of the room. Mikhail walked out the door, relishing the few minutes he had left to be on the island.
Gwen shrugged, proud by her achievement of being a self proclaimed prodigy. “I’ve entered a few, but I’ve never taken them seriously. If I were to do it again, I’d aim for the Triple Crown. Now that’s a race I’d love to have under my belt.” She smiled at Mikhail as she walked to the square. It was nice to see people enjoy it’s beauty. It made her believe that there was hope for the valley yet.
Overestimated? So you really have all that money ready? Well, that’s a first… Usually we just get the money in small doses through payment plan… *She grinned* I guess you’re already rolling the the “dough”~. *Walking back to him, he patted his back* Well it looks like we’re gonna be partners for a while, Carl! We can take checks and we’ll start no later than the day after tomorrow~!
